    Knife tip works pretty well. ;-)

    Hand Sanitizers

    Fresh, white ash from the campfire works great for me. (Natural source of lye). My friends always think I'm crazy, then they try it & everyone ends up washing with ash.

    I'll finish that off with some alcohol sanitizer if I'm about to grub.

    They can also be used as a fire starter.

    The ash is the active part of soap. Those that wonder can look up soap making. ;-)

    I carry a little hand sanitizer bottle for use as an emergency fire starter, and soap for all other hygiene. I can't take a sponge bath in alcohol and feel clean.

    too much attention is being given to sanitizers and sterile

    look back in time, when kids played outside, got dirty, ate mud pies, fell off their toys, got bunged up and so on...

    we washed up with soap n water, covered open wounds, splinted broken bones and went on

    for me n mine, we use simple soap n water

    at home as well as on the trail

    this opinion will, no doubt, raise a lot of discussion

    let the fun begin
    Yup! People have become such idiots with hand sanitizers that many companies (J&J, P&G, etc) created posters on "how to wash your hands" and companies hang them up in bathrooms. Pathetic. I'm convinced they are used too often and cause more harm than good. It reminds me of the parents that won't take their babies outside for months because of "allergies" - good luck with the next 70+ years of their life!

    I used hand sanitizer maybe 3 times in my life, every time was right before a vacation or event where I COULD NOT be sick. Just paranoid really.

    It has it uses, especially in the backcountry. Then again, at 32 years old I should be to the point where I know how to do my paperwork and keep it off my hands!

    To love to quote Dwight Schrute in this topic - "How bad are you at going to the bathroom?" LOL!
